appreciate your consideration of the legislation in us today to continue changes to our city's local business enterprise ordinance to increase contracting opportunities for so-called certified puc lbe, which are small businesses located within our regional water service area, but outside of the boundaries of san francisco. the puc lbe program was created in 2006 to allow small business that operate within our puc water service area to compete for work on the water system improvement program; as know the wisp program has two-thirds of costs being paid by regional water customers of the sfpuc and so the thinking in 2006 it was appropriate for those communities that pay for our water systems improvement to also yield the local economic benefits that are certified puc lbe contracting program can provide. since the wisp program is nearing completion, but the sfpuc has additional projects within the water service area that are not part of wisp construction, the changes in this legislation would allow puc it to continue to support the small businesses by expanding the program to other areas in the r

that the city was going to buy them. he never explained why they were going to change. and then more recently it has come out that the vendor is supposed to buy them, but the city is giving the money to the vendor to do that. and a lot of the dispute that is now going on has to do with the disposition of these boring machines. somehow it was suggested that the pagoda palace on palace street which has been an eyesore for sometime was the right site to take the machines out since there was considerable objection to taking them out at union square. and the city was forced -- the subway was forced to do some research into it and we were offered five options at a meeting back in november. and they had been studied and there was a vote towards the end of the meeting, a show of hands. more than half of the people present voted that they wanted the machines extracted in chinatown. subsequently research has shown that that was the initial plan all along to extract them in chinatown. but somehow it was decided it would disturb the community. the city decided to take them out, 7 blocks further. i'm here

restaurant innovates it is not a member of our group. the subway and the city have suggested that by ameliorating the situation we can survive. in fact we were told by concierges who come to the meetings and people who had the san francisco cab association is that the word on the street will get out there not to head to north beach. avoid that because it is a mess. extraction means noise and dirt; disruption of businesses in north beach. it behooves this commission to include at least the possibility of leaving the tunnel boring machines under the ground by the pagoda palace. doesn't cost the city anything to consider the possibility of under the pagoda palace leaving the very equipment that really is not necessary to take out of the ground. you yourselves proved in 2008 the eir, it says that one of the possibilities approved and considered the city is to live the equipment in the ground. i was asked by the chinese community that you to testify in favor of the central subway, something that many people in the neighborhood were against. i'm still in favor of the central su

, is it under my name or i can open up a new business and call it city hall ventures. my point is that if people on multiple businesses, is assigned to the person of the business name? if so people permit history on venues that these people own? how do you do that? >>: number one all of about. sole proprietors; you own one place, family-owned businesses, llc, big corporations, hotels where management is listed. it is across the board. the bottom line is if there is a change that is substantial, changing from a biker bar to a karaoke bar, it is not a content issue. we are concerned about the new owner. how does he do things? >> commissioner borden: i am not concerned about the venue as much as saying i have a venue on van ness and another on hayes. i operate the one on van ness really poorly but the one on hayes really well. good actor/bad actor conversation. the question in conditional use how do you determine who is a good project sponsor? >>: our process is not comfortable. is long and expensive. by the end of it we know who the operators are. to the uncomfortable process a relationship is

'd like to see employment programs, particularly those that are funded by the city to do more in terms of hiring veterans, and not just your recent veterans from iraq and afghanistan. but veterans period because when i came here in 1981, i was a homeless veteran for a short period of time. but i did get a chance to go to work. and i feel as though since i served the military active duty, honorably discharged, i shouldn't have to go [speaker not understood]. i should have been able to get work through an employment program. whether it be private, and particularly if it's a public funded program such as city build and [speaker not understood]. my other issue is that if you work for the city and you did not join the service in san francisco, you cannot take advantage of the city contracting you for your active duty military years. well, i served and fought right along with san francisco marines and i would like to see that changed. i'm probably the only veteran in the city to say that, but i'm saying that because it not only serves up the veteran right that served on active duty, but it a
